Cru was founded in 1951 by Bill and Vonette Bright as "Campus Crusade for Christ". In 2011, we changed our name to Cru for the specific purpose of being more effective in our ministry of reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It's all about helping people experience the good news that Jesus offers.
We've got a variety of resources here to answer any questions you may have about the 2011 name change. Look around.
